Cost Of Living In Puerto Galera (2008)

I recently moved to Sabang Beach from Manila. Been here about 2 months. Cost of living is easily 1/3-1/2 less then Manila. My rent for a 1 bedroom 3 room apartment is 14000p per month, last elect bill 1200p, groceries about 2000p per month we go out to eat at least 5 evenings a week.

Cost Of Living In Malabon, Manila (2008)

It is not only a falling US dollar but also a falling UK pound. We used to get 100 pesos now we get 80.

Incredible maybe but the Philippines is still excellent value and will continue to be so even if we have a pound worth 40 pesos and a dollar worth 20.

Why am I so optimistic?
